This is a Memphis Catholic landmark. It is a beautiful old church with a Our Lady of Lourdes grotto inside the church. It is also the oldest soup kitchen in the United States going back to the 1860's or 70's.

Beautiful place- we lite candles and just looked at the surroundings. Extremely beautiful and nice to just sit and watch people and stare at the windows.

The stain glass windows are a great part of this Catholic Church. I love the side alcove for Mother Mary. The homily was good. I enjoyed the few homilies I have heard there.

The chapel is beautiful. The stain glass makes for lovely pictures. This is a perfect place not only for worship but weddings that are medium to large. It is old but still in excellent shape. The court yard is very private - great for pictures....More
